Cork floats, $30: "I found these at an estate sale store…guess an old fisherman died. Real cork is increasingly rare to see it seems, being substituted by synthetics. I remember seeing an actual cork tree for the first time when I was in Portugal and it really impressed me. I hadn’t realized at the time that cork is just a naturally occurring bark on a tree. They feel amazing to climb as well. I read that the bark actually protects the tree during forest fires!"
